Father’s Day … what’s it all about?

We all know the deal … Father’s Day is where we celebrate the father figures in our lives. Whether it is Dad, Grandad, Step Dad, we get to say thank you for all that you do. But what is the origin?

Father’s Day is celebrated on 3rd Sunday of June in the UK. Many countries in Europe and South America celebrate it in March, and Australia celebrates it in September. The idea of the holiday is to give the tribute to all the hard work and sacrifice of each dad for the happiness of their children.

It is not very clear how people started to celebrate Father’s Day. Some believe that celebration has its origins in pagan sun worship, while others see the relationship of this holiday with The Catholic Church and feast of St Joseph way back in Middle Ages. The actual celebration of Father’s Day as we know today, began in the US only around 100 years ago.

There are two versions of how people started to celebrate Father’s Day. According to the first version, American girl named Sonora Dodd started this tradition in 1910. She and her siblings were raised by her father after their mother’s death and after a sermon for Mother’s Day, she wished to give the same recognition to her father. She began a campaign to have the day officially recognised. The first official celebration of Father’s Day was in Spokane in 1910 and after that many cities across America followed.

The second story is about Grace Golden Clayton, from Fairmont in Virginia. According to this version, Grace proposed this celebration after a mine explosion in which 360 men died. She had the idea of Father’s Day as a day when children can remember their fathers and pay their respects.

Today Father’s Day exists to remind everyone that fathers are great and is a way of reminiscing all the happy moments together and expressing heartfelt thanks and gratitude to them. On this day, children show their affection through various gifts through which they show their affection and creativity. Most popular gifts are handcrafted cards or other gifts like tools, a piece of clothing etc. The day is usually celebrated with parties or family lunch at home or at a pub with good food, fine liquors and tasteful music.

It’s not too late to book your table at The Boot Inn and show your appreciation of the Father figures in your life.
